|[THN084] Nulleins - Seven Spaces - Markus Dolic|
Seven Spaces is definitely not a concept album - it rather resembles a kind of sample assortment, composed of tracks produced from 2002 to 2005. However, the selection process has been dominated by one central ambition: variety. Particularly in the "electronic dub" segment, LP releases are prone to become slightly tedious when listened to in their full length, due to the genre's inherent bias towards lengthy and monotonous tracks...

In summer 2004 I have started a project, that reflects the lazy, laid-back behaviour of end summer afternoon hours, feeling a little bit introspective and melancholic. But I consider melancholy not as a malady, more than a preliminary starting point. The popular copperplate engraving of Albrecht Dürer "Melencholia I" e.g...

Schleudertrauma was a fasttracker module label back in 1998/1999 which released modules missing any information about the original composers since the premise has been to use monikers for every release. Back at that time there were a lot of rumours in the scene that asked who'd be behind Schleudertrauma...
